water-safety

A day at the pool is a great way to spend time with your kids and cool off from the hot Texas weather. Just remember, children can drown in a foot of water. The CDC states that drowning is the leading cause of accidental deaths among children ages one to four and the second leading cause of death for children under the age of fourteen. Never turn your back while they are in the water.

If you go into any local convenience or grocery store, chances are you will see the shelves stocked with various sorts of energy drinks all with claims to boost your energy, help you stay awake longer, help you perform better..... If you turn the label to look at the contents, they are mostly sugar and water and very large doses of caffeine (up to 3 times the amount found in colas) and other additives like taurine, guarana, L-carnitine, ginseng, and yohimbe. Many of these energy drinks' advertisement and marketing are directed at adolescents and kids. The biggest question is are these energy drinks safe for our children and teens?

How Old To Start Kindergarten?

It's probably the wrong time of year to be addressing this issue, but in recent weeks I've seen a lot of five and six year-olds getting ready to start Kindergarten. Most were very excited and I was excited for them too. Also anxious. I hope they have a great experience, a wonderful, memorable year, but, like their parents, there's always the worry that a bad first experience at 'real school' will color forever their attitude about school.
